On my wish list for the moment: A micro-fringed chain skinny leather belt from Versace. How cool? You can find it here.
I just spotted this fringe t-shirt from Acne Studios at La Garconne. I love the styling with the slouchy white 5-pocket leather trousers and the beige/nude Alma boots, also from Acne. The ‘Joshi’ fringe tee is available in white as well, but the black one is way cooler especially since this base is washed-out black – a beautiful contrast to all black fringes. If you like me love this tee, go get it here.
I have mentioned Monica Sordo’s jewelry before, but I just find these pieces stunning. The ‘Medusa’ collection is fabulous, such a luxurious bohemian collection with a lot of statement pieces. The earrings with gold fringes as well as the bracelets and cuff are my absolute favorites. You can find Monica’s pieces at Fivestory in N.Y. and here.
Gorgeous gladiator sandals as well as fringed heels at the Marios Schwab RTW Spring 2013 show. They are not yet in store but I think they will be available from March. The knee-high gladiator sandal and the t-strap flats are a collbaoration between Marios and Ancient Greek Sandals. I bought me a pair last year from Ancient and I love them. A reason to get me a new pair for the summer…

For the fashionable jet setter: Del Toro ‘New York’ slippers in light grey suede, a Smythson note book called ‘Brunch Lunch Suppers Dinners’, a Balenciaga travel luggage bag, a croco embossed cosmetic bag from Alexander Wang, the most goregous shoulder bag right now – from Céline, a pair of hippie stylish sunglasses from Victoria Beckham, a camera from Edelweiss and some fragrences – these ones comes from Byredo and Grace.

This is an old pic – but hey, is STILL going strong! Love the fringe-boots, reminds me so much about the ‘Mony’ (AW11) or the ‘Jacob’ (AW12) fringe boots, both from Isabel Marant. Very french and very chic – and timeless! The picture is from 2004, can’t believe it’s almost 9 years ago. From Self Service Magazine, featuring Anne Catherine Lacroix photgraphed by Alasdair McLellan and styled by Suzanne Koller
…Saint Laurent Paris, their spring 2012 ready-to-wear collection looked stunning! I loved the idea of all the models wearing big fedora-felt hats that covered half their faces. A very sexy and elegant collection with deep necklines and back-décolletages. Tassles and fringes à la Marocco style were mixed up with rock-chic suits and sequins. A great first collection from Mr Hedi Slimane.
The one-shoe-to-invest-in this fall and winter is definitely the knee-high boots. Christian Louboutin has a pair of amazing boots in suede with fringes in his fall collection and Givenchy has the shark-tooth boots which I’ve blogged about before. But these above are my favourites! Fringes, snake and thigh-high (!) boots from Altuzarra.
